Another Girlfriend Getaway at our Asheville Bed and BreakfastPosted by admin on September 26, 2009
This past weekend (Sept. 18-19) was a perfect example of a girlfriend’s get-away. A lady from Ohio, celebrating one of those big birthdays with a “0″ on the end, booked the complete 1899 Wright Inn and Carriage House for her guests.
Torrential rains here in North Carolina, as well as all over the southeast, dampened some of their plans like picnicking on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a day at Chimney Rock; it did not dampen their spirits. They managed to see Biltmore Estate, visit the downtown shops and galleries and ate in some of the many fine restaurants. Time was also spent on the veranda and in the beautiful parlors.
We often have family members meet here or college friends looking for an informal place to gather, stay at the 1899 Wright Inn and Carriage House. If you don’t need the whole inn, you might want to consider booking just the Carriage House which is also an 1899 structure with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room all to yourselves. We can accommodate up to six people there. Umbrella table, chairs and a picnic table are there for your enjoyment; but you are also welcome to use the parlors and veranda of the main inn.
A second option for a small group are the three bedrooms/bathrooms on the third floor. In the center of that floor, is a small private sitting area with love seats. Bedrooms, baths, feed off that area. It’s a great place for folks to meet and enjoy their time together. It’s the quietest part of the house and the windows look out into treetops.
We have done travel groups, religious retreats, business groups, family reunions, friends gathering for a wedding nearby and a host of other special occasions.
If you are looking for something special for six to twenty-six people, call us with your dates and let’s see what we can put together for you. It’s much more “intimate” a gathering place then a hotel/motel; it’s more like going to grandma’s house!!!
